Wait a second. WUD Music shows are normally $FREE.99. Why do I have to pay for this one?
While we here at WUD Music strive to fulfill our mission of booking great free music every weekend, on occasion we will book an artist that takes a little more out of our budget than average. Selling tickets for these special shows allow us to present the artist to you for a price that is affordable for both you and us.

Tickets are $15 today through Thursday. The price increases to $18 on Friday (the day of the show).
